boot_ci {cutpointr}R Documentation

Calculate bootstrap confidence intervals from a cutpointr object


Given a cutpointr object that includes bootstrap results this function calculates a bootstrap confidence interval for a selected variable. Missing values are removed before calculating the quantiles. In the case of multiple optimal cutpoints all cutpoints / metric values are included in the calculation. Values of the selected variable are returned for the percentiles alpha / 2 and 1 - alpha / 2. The metrics in the bootstrap data frames of cutpointr are suffixed with _b and _oob to indicate in-bag and out-of-bag, respectively. For example, to calculate quantiles of the in-bag AUC variable = AUC_b should be set.


boot_ci(x, variable, in_bag = TRUE, alpha = 0.05)



A cutpointr object with bootstrap results


Variable to calculate CI for


Whether the in-bag or out-of-bag results should be used for testing


Alpha level. Quantiles of the bootstrapped values are returned for (alpha / 2) and 1 - (alpha / 2).


A data frame with the columns quantile and value
